Jagr probably won't play in Devils' preseason finale

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr told reporters after practicing Wednesday that he probably won't play Thursday in the team's preseason finale against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"I'm probably not going to play [Thursday] only because I didn't have a practice with my teammates," said Jagr, who has skated on his own and with a group of Devils on Tuesday who weren't playing in that evening's game in Philadelphia.

Jagr, who left the Devils' first practice Sept. 12 with a lower-body injury, said the final decision belongs to the New Jersey coaching staff, but that he wouldn't be concerned about not getting into a preseason game and feels practices will be enough to get him up to speed.

The Devils open the regular season Oct. 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
